Sold Out | Friends' private visit to The Manor House Gardens, Bledlow
By kind permission of Lord and Lady Carrington
The Head Gardener will welcome the group and introduce this wonderful garden, originally created by the late Lord and Lady Carrington. The front lawn is dominated by a large cedar and a beech tree. Other interesting elements are the traditional walled garden; the herbaceous border bounded by a beech hedge; a wrought-iron gazebo over which a rose (Rosa ‘Phyllis Bide’) is trained; an avenue of Prunus lusitanica leading the eye to a mural of Vertumnus, the god of vegetation, by Owen Turville; and a garden, created in memory of Lady Carrington, which is composed of her favourite flowers and shrubs. The croquet lawn is surrounded by mixed borders and The Coracle Garden, planted with blue, white and yellow flowers, has a coracle-shaped fountain by William Pye.
There’s also a sculpture garden to explore before tea and cake are available in the Summer House.
